HOW THEY RATED ENGLAND

Joe Hart 6
In the sole moment his concentration was tested he responded well, tipping Elm’s corner over

Kyle Walker 9
Young full-back showcased his composure, stamina and willingness to get forward and attack. Excellent

John Terry 6
All eyes were on him and it wasn’t his best England game, but better than recent club outings

Gary Cahill 7
Good interceptions and one excellent block late on; otherwise quietly effective alongside Terry

Leighton Baines 8
A real threat on the overlap and combined brilliantly with Downing. A cert as deputy left-back

Gareth Barry 7
Caused goal, if he didn’t quite score it, and was neat and efficient if unspectacular. Classic Barry

Phil Jones 8
Another precocious performance from the 19-year-old, and almost capped by a deserved goal

Jack Rodwell 8
Superb display again: not overawed at all, caused problems with driving runs and posed a goal threat

Theo Walcott 7
Direct running caused panic in Sweden defence but crossing was too often a let-down

Stewart Downing 9
His best display for England and a constant menace. Beat players and delivered perfect crosses

Bobby Zamora 6
Battled gamely but wasted a couple of sniffs at goal when he ought to have done better

Substitutes
Scott Carson (Hart, 45) Nothing to do until he tipped wayward Larsson cross away. James Milner (Rodwell, 58) One good cross almost created second for Bent, otherwise quiet. Daniel Sturridge (Walcott, 58) Looked keen to impress on debut and showed endeavour but struggled to make telling impact. Darren Bent (Zamora, 70) Denied certain goal by last-ditch header.

Fabio Capello 8
Not most adventurous tactical approach but experiment with new players must be deemed a success
